Number of Servings: 12

8 Eggs
250 Gram(s) Castor sugar, 9 oz
250 Gram(s) Plain flour, sifted 9 oz
100 Gram(s) Unsalted butter, just melted
1/1/2 oz
1 Fat, 0 Other Carbohydrates

Preheat oven to 180C / 350F. Break eggs into a large bowl. Add sugar
and, using an electric beater, beat until the mixture forms a thick
ribbon. This takes about 10 minutes. To incorporate the most air, make
large movements with the beater. Add sifted flour all at once and,
using a rubber spatula, fold in gently but quickly. When you see that
the last of the flour has disappeared, incorporate the melted butter
quickly, but gently. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth
the top with a spatula. Bake in preheated oven for 35 - 40 minutes
for the large cake or about 30 minutes for the smaller ones. Test the
sponge by pressing lightly in the centre. If the sponge springs back,
it is done. When the sponge is cooked, remove from the oven and leave
to cool for a few minutes before gently unmoulding onto a cooling
rack. Converted by MC_Buster. Per serving: 103 Calories (kcal); 10g
